7:32 pm
>> the other thing who took him to the airport. they say he was dropped off at the airport. >> he had friends and room-mates here. i would count that as a neutral fact. not necessarily the person that dropped him off may have just dropped him off at the airport and may have known nothing about this. his friends told reporters that they saw him thursday and he seemed fine. >> i wouldn't read the drop off one way or another yet. >> the big question you said his motive. the fbi saying was carrying a note that said "he hoped to instill fear into their traitorouus minds and he was targeting tsa agent. ". the motive may not have been rational. we don't know that.
7:33 pm
but from the little evidence we have so far it doesn't seem like a rational act. we are talking about what happened in terminal three today. terminal three had fully re-opened. are passengers still dealing with a bac backlog of delays. >> yeah that always happens with air travel mess ups. whether it's weather or something like this. it's a chain reaction through the system. they are getting the planes back in terminal 3. it's like an accident on the freeway there is little traffic delay for three hours. i'm sure everything will be up and running normally today and tomorrow. the next question is where is everybody's bags are. there are large piles of bags in the airport today. >> are they talking about how they will reunite all of those people with the bags. >> i know in the rush to escape
7:34 pm
the gunman a lot of people left things behind. >> people ared advised to go to the air line desk for the airline they were going to my. all of the bags that were left in the terminal are brought into the ai airline dose desks it maa little bit of a treasure hunt for people. the luggage that was checked. they are scanning the bar code tags to let people know exactly where those bags are. there was a delay in that. but probably they are all scanned by now. and the airlines know where everybody's bags are. you just have to look through all the bags. >> brian i'm curious to know if you have seen stepped up,
7:35 pm
visibly stepped up security there? >> yes the police are a little pit more oubit more out front ty normally are. this being an airport there is a visible police presence as there have been since the 9/11 attacks. but there are more police here than there are on a northern day. >> we heard earlier from the airport police that he moved officers from inside of the terminal t to outside of the terminal. they have been shifting resources to better accommodate future security concerns. >> edescribed it as changing up your football play. if you run the same play every time you will not advance the ball because the opposition will know what you are doing. people that travel are familiar that very often this are police
7:36 pm
officers when you go through the screening. and he moved the police officers to the front of the screening area and believes that made a difference in cutting this short. lax is returnings it normal after a horrible day yesterday. >> we want to turn to other news. pakistan's government has dough mappeddedemanded a meeting with. ambassador. it's to do with a drone strike. they are accusing the u.s. of involving themselves in the peace talks. it was a ambush. it was not a fire from the front it was an ambush. and we see it as an ambush. >> the assembly is going to pass
7:37 pm
a unanimous declaration not to allow any nato sp supply to entr the province until though tell us the drone attacks have stopped. roslin joins us with more on. this what are the pakistani leaders accusing the us u.s. government of. >> there are two things they are accusing the obama administration of doing. one of violating pac pakistani sovereignty by launching a military attack on pakistani soil without islamabad's permission. and the other thing islamabad is accusing them of doing is skuttling an effort to broker peace talks about the pakistani taliban. therthey are arguing that with e death that basically that everything is lameverything islg to achieve is back at square one. the pack ta pakistani citizens g
7:38 pm
to be suffering from the attacks within their borders. vandait's widely assumed the pakistani government has been cooperating first with the bush administration and now with the obama administration. it's been the obama administration h that has increased the frequency of these attacks some would argue out of a sense that the pakistanis have not been doing enough to crack down on taliban and al qaeda sacactivitywithin it's borders. there was recently a front page story in the "washington post" that outlined in detail, not just how much access the pakistani government was giving to washington, but the fact that the pakistanis were getting top level intelligence briefings about the targets and the strategies used in deciding when to launch these attacks.
7:39 pm
it's worth keeping note that pakistani citizens do not like these drone attacks. so it's not surprising that you would see a vociferous objection from the highest level in the islamabad government because they have to find a way to play canadian theiplacate their citi. >> if it's killing pakistanis why this latest call for accountability. >> the prime minister was recently re-elected as prime minister. he has not been on the job for six months yet. it's essential to his staying in power to say to pakistani sit citizens i hear your concerns and i hear your fears. i'm going to try to do my very best to stand up to washington to prevent these sort of attacks from happening. there was a family that traveled from pakistan to washington this week to tell members of congress
7:40 pm
that the impact that one such drone attack had on their family. they were not the ta targets. but they lost their grand mother in what could be described as collateral damage. it's the surety of thin -- sortf thing that has terrified people and they can't trust washington and it's a close ally with pakistan. >> and have we heard anything from the white house today? >> we have not heard from the white house but from a senior administration official who is telling al jazeera that while the administration can't confirm that massoud was killed on friday in this drone strike khan said has port coquitlam th becol leader of the taliban. the taliban is a enemy of the united states and it's going to be working with the pakistani government to bring it to heal.
7:41 pm
massoud as death has pakistani's concerned about the peace talks. >> this is a major blow to the pakistan taliban which may have a struggle for power for succession. and a serious blow for the government of pakistan which was at a advance level of the preliminary talks with the taliban. a delegation was supposed to arrive on saturday to hold talks talks. so the peace prospects are now out of the question and yo of course a big blow is seen to be delivered to the pakistan. they will not be able to recover from this any time soon. it will be interesting to see if they go for punitive reprisal attacks. the government of pakistan has asked the security forces to be on red alert. >> a big development between
